The GI Society
As the Canadian leader in providing trusted, evidence-based information on all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, the GI Society is committed to improving the lives of people with GI and liver conditions, supporting research, advocating for appropriate patient access to healthcare, and promoting gastrointestinal and liver health.
The GI Society provides a variety of resources regarding a wide range of GI and liver illnesses, such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, GERD, celiac disease, hepatitis, and more. "Too many patients continue to suffer in silence, often for years, without receiving appropriate medical attention," says Gail Attara, President & CEO of the GI Society. "For some of these individuals, contact with the GI Society is the first step toward receiving validation, medically-sound information, and further resources to pursue the care they require."
